On October 26, Ambassador Kelly, together with Minister of Internal Affairs Giorgi Mgebrishvili, opened the new Georgian Border Land Sector Security facility  in Sulda.   Through support from the Defense Threat Reduction Agency (DTRA) and Export Control and Related Border Security (EXBS) Program, this modern facility will serve a 15-kilometer stretch of the Georgian-Turkish border.  Ambassador Kelly remarked: “This is another example of our very close cooperation and our partnership in fighting really a global problem, and that is the illegal crossing of borders by an unauthorized persons, and I think, most especially by unauthorized materials.  It really is our mutual interest that we cooperate in that regard.  And, that is why the Defense Threat Reduction Agency has helped the Georgian Government build this very modern facility that is equipped with the newest technology.”
